“I didn’t mind doing any of it, even cracking a whip or spanking somebody for Irving. Even the fetish stuff, wearing those six inch French heels. For some reason, one of the most popular pictures of me that sold the second most copies after the bondage shot of me off the ground was a picture of me with my foot up on a footstool and a cigarette dangling out of my mouth. And that’s more popular with the young people than any other photo I ever took. And I never did smoke in my life.”
